Energy drag chain

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #6945027.

The invention relates to an energy drag chain for guiding cables, pipes or the like between two connection points that are movable relative to each other and that is configured by a single strand of flat links comprising chain links (5) that are hinged to one another and can be bent relative to one another. At least some of said chain links (5) are provided with at least one support (1) that comprises a compartment for receiving the cables (2) that is open in the longitudinal direction of the chain. The aim of the invention is to provide a device that is simple in design and that allows support and guidance of the cable in a simple manner. To this end, the support comprises at least one element for modifying the cross-section of the compartment for receiving the cables (2) with which the cross-section can lie manually adjusted.
